Pierre Deroche Unveils GrandeCliff Double Retograde Skyscrapers Watch

Oct 24, 2008
The powerful design of GrandeCliff Double Retograde Skyscrapers, unveiled by Pierre Deroche, has been suggested by the modern urban constructions with their gravity-defying skylines.

The futuristic and classic GrandCliff Skyscrapers boasts remarkable technical sophistication. The zest of the watch is two majestic half-moon counters facing each other. The counters offer a retrograde read-off of the hours and minutes.

The breathtaking dial is composed of more than 55 parts. With the design inspired by skyscrapers, the hours and minutes reveal polished sides and luminescent tips. To come up with the superlative finish of the dial, the creators of the timepiece applied such operations as polishing, satin-brushing, and sapphire-blasting. The dial is completed with voluminous rhodium-plated hour-markers.

The hands of the watch have clearly been inspired by the Empire State Building, enhancing the forceful character of the exceptional timekeeping creation. The bezel of the GrandeCliff Double Retograde Skyscrapers sparkles with 64 black diamonds.

The timepiece is equipped with a self-winding movement, Dubois Depraz calibre, incorporating a cut-out and engraved oscillating weight. The movement provides the retrograde hours and minutes, as well as small seconds.

The case of the Pierre Deroche watch is crafted from polished and satin-brushed 316L steel. The case construction incorporates a screw-locked crown, glare-proofed sapphire glass, and an engraved case-back. The timepiece boasts 100-meter water-resistance.
